Andy Rotondaro, the newly elected commissioner of North Bay Village, discusses the importance of incorporating sustainability in the community and how he plans to achieve it.
A society without sustainability is a society without a future. However, a better way of living is possible. If you want to live, work, or play in a community that is concerned about the world it leaves for future generations, sustainability is the key idea to take into account. Sustainability combines environmental, social, and economic advantages to ensure a brighter future. Residents of a sustainable community have a higher quality of life. They are more energy efficient, which enables them to lead more sustainable lives in harmony with the environment.
We hold the key to a sustainable future and the decisions we make today are critical. Andy Rotondaro of The Daro Team, who was recently elected Harbor Island Commissioner of North Bay Village, Miami, explains why he believes the community needs to incorporate sustainability and what measures he plans to take as the commissioner of the city.
Why Sustainability Should Matter?
The term "sustainability" refers to meeting our current needs without jeopardizing future generations' ability to meet their own. It requires a long-term outlook, focusing on foreseeing and adjusting to changes in the present and future. Andy considers environmental conservation to be an important component of sustainability, which entails protecting the environment and natural resources at the personal, organizational, and governmental levels. Today's major problems range from ozone depletion, and global warming to deforestation, desertification, and pollution. Andy says that these problems all pose a serious threat to the continued existence of humankind.
The realtor turned commissioner makes a few points that should be carefully considered to prevent further environmental degradation. He contends that we must take steps to reduce land, water and air pollution. The next priority on the list is to make natural resource conservation easier for future generations. Furthermore, it is long overdue to ensure biodiversity protection and ecological balance restoration. Andy proposes implementing sustainable development to save our planet from the harmful consequences of global warming.
Measures That Andy Plans To Take
As a part of his objective, Andy wants to improve the health and sustainability of water, sanitation, and the overall community of North Bay Village. He wants to implement sustainability properly, which includes organizing monthly cleanups and making efforts to separate the trash into wet and dry categories. Andy also wishes to integrate sustainability by reducing single-use plastic, which will help to preserve wildlife and water bodies.
The introduction of green energy, also known as renewable energy, to the village is another major goal for Andy. He wishes to collaborate with the appropriate organizations to make solar energy, public wifi, and a variety of other services available to the community.
Andy intends to educate people on how they can be conscious members of a community that is prepared to give back to the next generation through his social channels. He asks for residents' participation and openness to his initiatives. Finally, Andy believes that it is our responsibility to protect and not abuse the environment in which we live.
